If you’re joining the Student Challenge, you will be asked to frame your pitch by presenting a 1-page overview of existing SDG-relevant technologies within the theme you’ve selected.

Your short video pitch should then discuss which new technological solution should be developed, and why and how this will make a difference in achieving the SDGs. If you participate in the Research Challenge, you will be invited to provide a 1-page overview of state-of-the-art technologies related to the theme you are contributing to. As part of that overview, you should also identify the technology that – if applied worldwide – has the greatest potential to contribute to achieving the SDGs. Your short video pitch should then illustrate how your personal research goes beyond one or more technologies listed in your overview, and how it impacts achievement of the SDGs.
